Macroni and Scholzi meet Osmani and Vucic today

The President of France, Emmanuel Macron, has announced that on Thursday [today], together with the German Chancellor, Olaf Scholz, he will talk with the President of Kosovo, Vjosa Osman, and the President of Serbia, Aleksandër Vučić.

Macron announced the news during a speech at the GLOBSEC conference held in Bratislava on Wednesday.

Prime Minister Albin Kurti also participated in this conference, who met with the High Representative of the European Union, Josep Borrell, and the EU envoy for the dialogue between Kosovo and Serbia, Miroslav Lajcak.

These meetings will be held separately between the French president and the German chancellor with the leaders of Kosovo and Serbia.

The meetings will be organized on the sidelines of the European Political Community summit in the Moldovan capital, Chisinau.

Macron had said that the Kosovo authorities "bear responsibility for the riots, which have increased significantly" in the north of Kosovo, since the new Albanian mayors took office in the Serbian-majority municipalities.

The position of the French president is in coordination with the statements of the United States of America and other QUINT countries, which made the Government of Kosovo guilty for the tension of the situation in the north of the country.

The international reactions came after the actions of the Kosovo Police, on May 26, in the three municipalities in the north of Kosovo, Zubin Potok, Zveçan and Leposaviq, to ​​ensure access to the municipal facilities of the new mayors of these three municipalities.

The escalation in the north culminated on Monday, May 29, when KFOR peacekeeping troops intervened in Zveçan "to avoid clashes between the parties and to minimize the risk of escalation", and were attacked by several violent protesters, which the Kosovo government says they were "Serbian criminal gangs".

From this fight that happened, 30 KFOR soldiers were injured.
